In a much expected move Argos have moved into parent company Sainsbury’s branch in Woolwich and closed their store on Powis Street.
The company announced the closure of over 400 stores in November 2020, and if you’ve been into a Sainsbury’s of any decent size in recent years you’d have seen Argos concessions within.
Greenwich Council have plans in the mid to long term to demolish the car park and store on Calderwood Street:
The information is included in a planning document covering development sites in future.
The document labelled the site as “detrimental to the character and cohesiveness of the town centre”.
The top floor is currently used as parking for residents at an adjacent housing block, which was converted from office space.
